Default Artist Point at 2:00 AM

my first real attempt at shooting the Milky Way... i've got a long way to go, and i'm sort of having to figure out the processing by trial and error, but this is what i've come up with so far... taken with my 5D2, 17-35 lens @ 17mm, f/2.8, 25 sec @ ISO 5000... there's a lot of light pollution from the city of Bellingham over the horizon, but some things can't be helped... any suggestions for making this better would be greatly appreciated!!

have no knowledge of astrophotography
but
it appears to me you have some camera movement
assuming you used a tripod and a cable release
hang a weight (your camera bag will do) from the bottom of the tripod for extra stability

ps. I actually rather like this image - exposure is spot on

thanks. the camera wasn't moving, the stars were... had the shutter open just a tad too long for the focal length i was using...

I disagree - the earth was rotating -

I was referring to the b/g mountains which appear very 'soft'

maybe it's my monitor

the image itself is still excellent
